It is with heavy hearts that we announce the closure of The Roberts School after 48 enriching years of service to the Menlo Park community and its neighboring areas. Changes in the educational landscape, particularly the challenges presented by Covid and the introduction of Universal Preschool, have significantly affected our enrollment numbers.
Throughout these years, it has been an immense privilege to be entrusted with the care and education of your cherished children. The relationships we've built with each family have brought immeasurable joy to our lives, and these are bonds we will miss deeply.
As you move forward, we extend our warmest wishes for continued success and happiness to you and your families. Should you need any assistance or support, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

The Roberts School offers a developmentally appropriate program for children inspired by the philosophy of Piaget. The focus of our curriculum and enrichment activities is
to encourage, support and develop the whole child.
What makes The Roberts School unique is the implementation of developmental and age appropriate academic components in a setting that is structured yet not rigid. Our children enjoy a day where curriculum is balanced with play as well as a variety of enrichment activities that include art, cooking, gardening, music, gymnastics, Spanish and more.
The emotional needs and personal safety of each child are of the utmost importance. Our goal is to develop and enhance self esteem, independence, empathy and the joy of childhood. Our program is offered to preschoolers, pre-kindergarteners, and young fives and has been in business since 1975.
